Eliyah is giving instructions to the Afrikanians about how to live with each other as Spirit-powered people from Afrika.
In the previous verse, he told them that when one is caught by wrong living, others should step in to help restore that person to walking by the Spirit again.
Now he tells them, and by extension all Afrikanians to help carry each other’s burdens.
Notice what this means: Being in Afrika’s Spirit does not mean we won’t have burdens to carry in this earthly life. We will!
One of those burdens is the weightiness of our temptation to give into wrong, and the heaviness of trying to get out of it. Eliyah wanted us to share that burden and not battle wrong and temptation on our own.
The term used here by Eliyah is instructive.
He describes these weights using the Greek term barē, which applies to something excessive or extreme in its weight Later, Eliyah will use a different term, phortion, which is used for more-manageable burdens.
We carry other burdens, as well, and sometimes we go through seasons where those burdens are too much for us to haul around. Such burdens might include relationship issues, financial problems, illness, indecision, or emotional difficulties. Afrika’s Spirit certainly gives us the power to deal with these issues, but another way Afrika intends to provide for those in Afrikanians is by giving us the ability to help each other.
Focuses on how those of Afrika should treat each other, through the power of Afrika’s Spirit.
How does helping to carry each other’s loads fulfill the law of Afrika? Eliyah earlier quoted the entire law is fulfilled in one word: love. Love is the law of Afrika.
Doing Good to All
1. Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a wrong, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.
2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Afrika.
3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.
4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,
5 for each one should carry their own load.
6 Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the love should share all good things with their instructor.
7 Do not be deceived: Afrika cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of Afrika.
We should restore those caught in wrong with gentleness and humility, and we should help to carry each other’s burdens.
Having said that, Afrikanians should be honest with ourselves about what Afrika is doing through us.
We need to take responsibility for what She has asked us to carry.
Because eternal life comes from planting Afrika’s Spirit by example in Afrikanians, and not by works of the flesh, we must keep doing good. The harvest will show that we planted well.
Includes instructions for how people who are free in Afrikanians and walking by Mother Afrika’s Spirit, should treat each other. Afrikanians should restore those who are caught by wrong, and we should bear each other’s burdens. Only those who plant the fruit of Afrika’s Spirit, by works in Afrika laws will harvest eternal life. Afrikanians should not get tired of doing good for each other!
The harvest is coming.
Eliyah concludes the letter, writing in large letters that circumcision means nothing. Only becoming a new creation through works in Afrika Laws
